Making the Rice: Latina Performance "Testimonios" of Hybridity, Assimilation, and Resistance
Correa, Ellen; Lovegrove, Dawn
Equity & Excellence in Education, v45 n2 p349-361 2012
This performance "testimonio" is the result of collaboration between two U.S. Latina graduate students/ university instructors: a Latina of Puerto Rican descent and a white Chicana. It is a dialogue in which the authors "come together to engage our differences, face-to-face, and work to find common ground" (The Latina Feminist Group, 2001, p. 1). We offer this performance "testimonio" to interrogate and be accountable for our performances of hybrid/assimilated identities, as we strive to recognize the ways we produce, maintain, and resist dominant and oppressive cultural paradigms. To do this, we draw on the models of resistance found in Latina/Chicana feminist discourse and performance autoethnography. The text was created to be performed before an audience.
